A grant-loan fund devised by students for low Income
black students recently has been announced by the Office
of Minority Affairs.
The Idea came from sophomores Leanette Merreil and
Clairenetta Hedgewood, according to James Smith, acting
director of the office.
"Credit should also go to Annette Hudson, a counselor
with the rvnnrnm who is coordinating the project," he said.
Tht fund is designed to give financial aid to black
students "to meet financial deadlines and to adjust to their
environment," Smith said.
He said many black students depend on federal funds,
and if there is difficulty receiving the funds on time, they
cannot meet UNL housing and tuition deadlines.

course there will be no ceiling on it," Smith said.
The money is to be collected outside the University, he

Smith said, because the black student and Lincoln need to
develop a positive relationship.
"If the rnonay to support a student is coming from tha
community psrhaps tha student will feel the community
needs him or her and will not choose to leave," he said.
John ftobinson, a Lincoln city councilman, has helped
with the legal work to arrange the program. Smith said. A
board to manage the fund will be established, composed of
community members, faculty staff and University students.
The UNL Office of Scholarships and Financial Aids will
be the "control mechanism" to determine which of the 202
black students are most in need of money, he said.
The board's duty is to solicit funds from the

A step in tne process of freeing me w.y ...
dependence on student fees has been taken by the UNL
Publications Committee, the publisher of the paper.
Friday, the committee purchased a photographic typesetter, a
machine which would allow part of the paper's production to be

Printing Co. of Lincoln.

offset printing process. Baker said. Setting the copy, the
"pasteup" and ail other steps except for final photographic work
and printing could be done in the present Daily Nebraskan office,
The new production method will result in about a $7 per page
savings for the paper, Baker said. He said it costs about $25 per
page to produce the paper under the present system.
The machine can be purchased only if the recently established
Fee Allocations Board grants enough money to the Daily
Nebraskan, Baker said. The order for the machine will be
cancelled if the money isn't received.
The equipment would be installed during the summer and
would be in working condition by the fall semester. The paper
currently is seeking a professional production manager to oversee
the operation, Baker said.
Baker said it Is important that the Daily Nebraskan assume
more of the production of the paper, "to save money and to
provide for a greater educational experience for the staff
